Four Nations, Eleven Schools, One Vision


Maskwacîs is a Cree First Nation’s community in central Alberta that is home to 4 distinct Cree Nations: Ermineskin, Louis Bull, Montana and Samson.

MESC has been given a mandate from the Maskwacîs Chiefs and Councils to research the creation of a single education authority.

With the ongoing support of all Maskwacîs Chiefs and Councils, as well as the federal government, MESC has been working to explore the development and implementation of a single education authority for all of Maskwacîs.

The main objectives of establishing a single Maskwacîs education authority will be to:

  1. Ensure the educational success of Maskwacîs students (ECS-Gr.12) from Ermineskin Cree Nation, Louis Bull Tribe, Montana First Nation and Samson Cree Nation;
  2. Enhance supports and strengthen capacity to provide education to Maskwacîs students in order to increase the number of students attending school, completing high school, pursuing post-secondary education and/or entering the workforce;
  3. Utilize Indigenous knowledge and philosophy to support the preservation and revitalization of Cree language, culture, Cree natural laws and protocols;
  4. Establish standards for education that continue to meet or exceed provincial standards currently held by Alberta Education; and
  5. Ensure there is accountability to Maskwacîs Cree Nations and funders regarding the educational outcomes of Maskwacîs students.
